I particularly love the way the reins meet the left hands.

The sculptor curled them up to get the figurine on the horse. They are long so that you can bend them right up to the left hand, then trim.

Here's a first look at one of the new codes in Wave 2 of this range.

Wave 2 will be released in May, and will be:

Knights in surcoats, lance upright
Knights in surcoats, lance at 45 degrees
Knights in surcoats, command

Military orders in mantle, lance upright
Military orders in mantle, lance at 45 degrees
Military orders in mantle, command

Also all the sets (including the existing codes of surcoatless knights) will now have the option to be mounted on caparisoned horses.

Wave 3 will be armoured nfantry with spears, armoured infantry with crossbows, unarmoured infantry archers, Richard the Lionhearted, and Friederich Barbarossa.

Here are the Miliary order knights in mantle, with lance upright, on the caparisoned horses:

They are!  :-* :-* :-*

Unfortunately the postal rates from the USA have made this project a no go for me :(

We are very pleased to release the second wave of our 28mm late 12th century European range. Available now:
https://khurasanminiatures.tripod.com/28mm-late-12th-century.html

This release adds twelve new codes ó secular knights in surcoats (still a minority of knights in this period), and military orders brethren in mantles (which they wore until a Papal bull of 1249AD permitted them to don the surcoat instead). It adds caparisoned horses as an option for all of the knights. Infantry spearmen and crossbowmen will be released next!

They look pretty good  :-*

The one thing that puts me off is the lack of dynamic animation in the horses. Generally, if possible, I like to have my units look like they are in a fight or about to enter one at any second.

BTW, If memory serves, I think it was only the Hospitallers who wore the Cappa Clausa until the Papal Bull of 1249 with the Templars being released from the restrictive confines of the garment at a much earlier date.

Only eight years earlier. We donít know the exact date of Gregory IXís letter to the Templars allowing them to ditch the mantle for what he calls a ďsupertunicĒ (presumably meaning the surcoat) but itís generally considered to have been around 1240.

By the way, the papal bull to the hospitallers was 1248, not 1249. My mistake.

Interesting, it's not what I've read (Runciman, so very possibly out of date on on my part) so I possibly need to educate myself a little. Thanks for the correction..... [moves towards bookshelf] :)

They do look good! How do they compare with GB and Perry in size and style? Are they available somewhere in Europe?

They are smaller in comparison with Footsore. I can take a comparison picture between a mini from Caballero and footsore... Sadly you can only order them directly from the USA. Last time I ordered I had the luck to not pay any customs / extra taxes.
